Challenge dates: Thanksgiving Break 2020 (including weekends)- Saturday, November 21 through Sunday, November 29
Tracking minutes: Students will use the attached reading log to record the minutes they read over the break. They can also use their own sheet of paper to track their minutes.
Deadlines: Students should (virtually) turn in completed logs to their teachers when they return from break on November 30th. Students can send a photo or simply send the number of minutes read to their teacher. I will be sending out a Google form for schools to submit student minutes.
Goal: We are challenging students to read at least 20-minutes a day, which is a total of 180 minutes over the 9-day break.
Top School traveling banner- The High School winner will receive a fence banner to hang outside of your school to announce your accomplishment! The reigning champions are Van Buren Elementary and Classen Middle School – we can’t wait to see who wins this time, and to announce the top high school!
Yard signs- The top three students at every school who meet the goal will receive a sign to display in their yard or window to announce that “An Outstanding Reader Lives Here!”
Award Buttons- ALL students who make the reading goal (180 minutes) will receive an I Met the Goal! Award button.
Other prizes include Raising Cane’s gift certificates, passes to the Devon Ice Rink, and business-ready gift bags from Devon for our HS students.
